This summer, there will be changes to traffic conditions for drivers travelling in the inner west.
We will be upgrading ramps, rebuilding the pavement and continuing to shift lanes on the West Gate Freeway to create new construction sites to rebuild and widen the Freeway by two new through lanes in each direction.
Motorists should plan ahead and allow for extra travel time with delays of up to 40 minutes expected.
Motorists travelling during this period should keep in mind the following closures:
Truck curfews at Francis Street are still in effect at the following times:
Signed detours are in place during this period of construction works. We encourage motorists to plan their journeys ahead of time.
For updates on any changes to your bus route – please visit Public Transport Victoria's Journey Planner webpage to plan your journey and for bus service changes. Signage will also be provided at impacted bus stops in the lead-up to the works.
Over summer, major infrastructure and public transport construction works will also be taking place across Melbourne. This also includes works on the West Gate Bridge carried out by VicRoads.
Major road works continue on the Monash Freeway, including daytime lane closures and weekend ramp closures as we work to resurface and improve the EastLink connection to the Monash. More information is available on the Victoria's Big Build M1 freeway closures webpage.
Details of the impact for each disruption will be made available ahead of time, and real time information on delays will be provided during each disruption.
Plan your trip in advance - for more information, check out the Victoria’s Big Build Disruptions page.
These works are scheduled to coincide with the Victorian summer school holidays period when traffic volumes are lower, so that we can reduce the impact on road users. It also means we can complete some of the louder work during daylight hours to reduce impacts on nearby residents and businesses.
We know these construction works are disruptive and appreciate and thank the community for their patience. Keep up to date with these changes by
